I can adapt to a lot of things, but I would be very disappointed if the manufacturer changed the paper in my annual Exacompta Journal 21 daily desk planner -- I use it as a daily journal. The paper works very well with Sharpie pens.

And when the Sharpie begins to show its age it's relegated to solving sudoku and crossword puzzles.

Thanks for the info. It sounds like something I would have been interested years ago. Over the years I've put data in many locations (including my Palm OS PDA), and it would have been good to put all of the data in one location and those notebooks would have been a good option.

I'm considering going with a three-ring binder containing 3" by 5" cards or 5" x 8" cards and writing on them in pencil. This would allow me to make corrections, arrange the cards as needed, and dispose of unneeded cards. It would take the place of my late, lamented Palm OS PDA (which is no longer supported by my OS). While it would be larger than the above books, it would still be in a convenient size.

Have you thought about a disc-bound notebook? Most of the office supply stores sell them now. Solid discs with a lip for binding fits perfectly into paper punched with the right shape. Easy to move the pages around, but a regular notebook size instead of a binder. https://www.staples.com/arc+discboun...bound+notebook shows some examples, just to show what I'm talking about.

I hadn't considered it because of the size, I'm looking for something smaller than the standard 8 1/2" by 11". I took a look and what I saw looked interesting and I might consider it, although if I go with the letter-size paper size I might just go a standard three-ring binder. The advantage of that is that with my computer I can design my own forms for the binder rather relying on pre-created forms.

I just purchased some spiral pads (6" by 9" with spiral binding at the top [like a steno pad except no vertical line in the middle of the page] with microperforated pages) that might serve my needs, at least for taking notes. I prefer the spiral binding at the top since I can use the entire width of the page for writing.
